Episode 119 of 204 episodes

Polls are not always accurate and in the US they are more regular and more detailed than everywhere else. But can polling actually shape a campaign, rather than merely reflect it?

Featuring Jason Husser from the Elon University Poll; Dr Frank Newport, editor in chief of The Gallup Poll; and Azi Paybarah from Politico New York.
